Let people suspect but it won't happen, says Ajay Kumar Lallu on their candidates changing sides

Updated 23 Mar 2018 10:33 AM

Congress leader Ajay Kumar Lallu is assured of BSP and SP's win. While speaking on MLAs changing sides to make someone else win he said, "People speculate such things always. But it would not happen."

The biggest battle for the Rajya Sabha will be in Uttar Pradesh, where BJP has the numbers to send its eight candidates to the upper house but eyeing an extra seat to disturb the equation of the SP-BSP alliance.

In order to ensure a straight win in the Rajya Sabha elections from Uttar Pradesh, a candidate has to get 37 votes. The BJP has 324 MLAs in the state assembly and is assured of at least eight seats. The saffron party will have 28 surplus votes and hope to gain from dissension in rival parties to get his ninth candidate into the Upper House from UP.

The BSP has 19 MLAs in the 403-member Assembly and is short of 18 first preference votes. The SP, which has 47 MLAs in the House, can transfer 10 surplus votes to the BSP taking the number of first preference votes for the BSP candidate to 29. Now, the seven votes of the Congress and one of RLD can help the BSP candidate reach the magic figure of 37 votes.
